The Buccaneers made what was widely expected official today with the release of tight end Cameron Brate.

Brate had spent his entire career with the Buccaneers, signing as an undrafted free agent in 2014.

Last year Brate had a disappointing season, missing time with a concussion and a neck injury, and he caught just 20 passes for 174 yards.

The Buccaneers drafted two tight ends last year, Cade Otton in the fourth round and Ko Kieft in the sixth round, and they appear focused on getting younger at the position.

  1. Remember when the Patriots wanted to trade for OJ Howard after Tampa acquired Gronk. They had Howard, Gronk, and Brate. They wouldnt deal him for less than a 1st round pick. LMFAO. 2 years later all of them are gone.

  2. Brate has been a consistent player for 9 seasons. Solid on all fronts and a great locker room presence. Going to miss him suiting up for us on Sundays.
